Jacqui Getty Home in C Mag - So Haute

Style Stalking: Jacqui Getty at Home

In this installment of Style Stalking we examine the profoundly beautiful home of LA tastemaker, costume designer, stylist and fashion editor Jacqui Getty. Her home is currently featured in the September issue of C Magazine and I am completely OBSESSED! Nestled high atop the Hollywood Hills, Getty’s Spanish style home is full of deeply personal touches like family photos, gifts from loved ones and a MAJOR art collection that I’m willing to bet is worth more than the house itself! (We’re talking Jackson Pollacks and Basquiats here!) The house also has quite a storied history…it was a gift from famed …

Kishani Perera - Rummage Home Storefront

Haute Shop: Rummage

My friend, interior designer Kishani Perera, recently opened up a lovely little shop called Rummage on Beverly Blvd in LA that’s full of one-of-a-kind vintage treasures re-worked with Kishani’s colorful, whimsical magic. It’s no secret that Kishani is the decorator of choice for Hollywood celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Josh Duhamel and Molly Simms, but now anyone can get a piece of her signature style at Rummage which offers high and low finds plus some of Kishani’s own custom furniture designs. She says accessories – particularly colorful, ethnic-inspired pillows – have been top sellers at Rummage since it opened in …

Josh Greene _ Hamptons Cottages & Gardens

Josh Greene Creates Serene Style in Southampton

I was so excited to see one of my friend Josh Greene’s design projects recently featured in Hamptons Cottages & Gardens! The 675 square foot cottage he designed for a Manhattan couple might be a bit small, but what it lacks in space it makes up for it with major style! The weekend retreat was designed for comfort and blends classic Americana with a bit of Hamptons prep…think sisal carpets, beadboard paneling, ticking stripes and a color palette of calming blues mixed with neutral hues. Here are the photos and to read the full story click here to read it …

Jenna Lyons - Stylist - 1

Style Stalking: Jenna Lyons at Work + How to Get Her Look!

I’m willing to bet I’m not the only one who’s a little bit obsessed with J. Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons’ killer personal style. Her effortlessly layered looks and quirky, slightly tomboy-ish, mix and match approach to dressing has made her a bonafide style icon yet while she’s often revered for her fashion choices, I’d argue that her decor style is equally enviable. Jenna even once said in an interview that if she wasn’t working in fashion she’d probably be an interior designer! Not only does she live in an uber-cool Brooklyn brownstone which she decorated herself, (see …

An item on my current lust list is a traditional Beni Ouarian rug. I so want to toss the cowhide in my living room and replace it with one of these eclectic beauties! They have such a timeless look and are a great way to add an ethnic touch to your decor. You’ve seen them in your favorite shelter magazines and above is a perfect example from Elle Decor. These authentic tribal rugs are hand woven by people of the Beni Ouarian tribe and other neighboring Berber tribes that reside in the Atlas …
